With agreement from both sets of members, South Lakeland Credit Union Limited transferred its undertakings to EdenSave in January 2017; the common bond was extended to cover both Eden District and South Lakeland District, and the business name was changed
to Eden & South Lakeland Credit Union Limited. Later in the year the Credit Union celebrated its arrival into Kendal's Town Hall following a period based at Sandylands Methodist Church.
The Credit Union is run by a loyal team of
volunteers, and more will be needed both for the new Kendal office and for Penrith and Alston Moor. With the merger, Eden and South Lakeland Credit Union have bigger things in the pipeline for the Kendal area. The new outreach office is a forerunner for
a planned town centre office in Kendal, open more days a week from the autumn. The Credit Union is soon recruiting its first paid employee who will be part-time for the moment. There are more 600 members who are saving more than £400,000 and borrowing
approximately £144,000 between them. T
